    I have been working at State Farm full-time

    Pros

    I worked for and Agent and she was great. We were like family. But it depends on the agent you work for. My agent paid for our health insurance, 401k matching and life insurance. She was one of few. Most agents don't. Our office was opened late and on Saturdays but we would always take off for family things. You can make good $ if you sell your bum off. But it depends on the commission structure of the agent.

    Cons

    Potential for growth was slim to none. You're basically set in the same position with the same salary.

  2. Very nice and well versed team

    Some of upper management were micro managers and did not treat their team members with the respect they deserved.
